Great episode
11 October 2016 | by (Seattle, Washington United States) – See all my reviews

The best Wagon Train episode I have ever seen. No spoilers here. Just a remarkable story, well written, and the acting wasn't bad either... I urge everyone to watch this episode. This was a great story. I am a western fanatic. The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp. Have Gun, Will Travel. Gunsmoke. Laramie. Wagon Train. Bat Masterson...I watch them ALL! Well, except for Have Gun, Will Travel because Encore Western channel took the OFF (Shame on Encore Westerns! Very Bad Decision on their part and adding not one, but two episodes of Wanted: Dead or Alive. I like Steve McQueen but...)!!! Anyway, today the episode of Wagon Train-The Tom Tuesday story was one of the best I have seen in a long time. First, it was well written. It was way different from the normal bad guy-good guy, good guy wins fare. This was a very good story. It was very well acted too. This will be by far one of my favorite story lines ever. Watch it if you can. I liked it very much!!
